To�dream that someone or something is mutilated indicates that your integrity is put into question.
To see or dream that you are in a greenhouse represents transformation. You are experiencing some changes in your life brought about mainly as a result of your own doing. It also suggests that you may be too overly controlling. You want things done your way, but in the process you may be isolating yourself.
To dream that you are at a party suggests that you need to get out more and enjoy yourself. If the party is a bad one, then it indicates that you are unsure of your social skills. If you dream that you are at your own birthday party, then it represents appreciation of the life you have.�
Back in the late 1990s, when the Satanic Panic had almost run its course, belief in SRA appeared to be still strong within the animal protection community. In 1996, Nancy Suro, director of the Maxfund, a pet-adoption agency in Colorado, said: ''Some satanic cults sacrifice all-black or all-white cats as part of their rituals. I know such activity goes on. We absolutely refuse to take any chances with these cats' lives." 4 In 1997, Deborah Thomas the executive director of the Maryland SPCA said: "As horrible as this may sound, cats are tortured around Halloween time. It's just incredible what people will do to cats, as if they don't have any feelings." 5
In Taghairm black cats were impaled and roasted on fires. Their horrendous screeching would attract other cats and, eventually, a great cat-like creature, the 'cat-spirit' would appear. This entity would grant favours. (This activity is associated with the mysterious Scottish phrase 'Giving his supper to the devil'.)

A large and ferocious cat, the demonic god of the cats, appeared in answer to the wicked and ferocious ceremony of the Taghairm, which consisted in roasting successive cats alive on spits for four days and nights until Big Ears appeared and granted the wishes of the torturers. The last ceremony of Taghairm was said to have been performed in Mull and was described in detail in the London Literary Gazette (March 1824). The account is quoted by D. A. Mackenzie in SCOTTISH FOLK LORE AND FOLK LIFE.
